The 29th Galway Film Fleadh has announced that Richard Kelly will be the subject of this year’s Screenwriters Masterclass.


With his visually arresting, tonally eclectic and intellectually engaging films, writer-director Richard Kelly has created one of the most rewarding bodies of work in the industry. He has also consistently been ahead of his time. Kelly’s first feature Donnie Darko is now one of the most beloved cult hits of the 21st century.

The masterclass will be moderated by Mary Kate O Flanagan, who is an award-winning screenwriter and story consultant in the European film and television industry. She teaches story in The UK and The US, across Europe as well as in Ireland.

 The masterclass costs €50 and will take place on Thursday the 13th of July from 10am – 1pm in the Radisson Hotel, Galway. For further information or to apply for a place, contact Brónagh Keys by email at:

Some scenes may be inappropriate for a young audience – viewer discretion advised.
